Danvers, Mass., August 25, 2014 – To help celebrate this year’s SYLVANIA 300, the second race in the Chase for the NASCAR® Sprint® Cup taking place Sept. 21, North American lighting leader OSRAM SYLVANIA and New Hampshire Motor Speedway (NHMS) are launching two exciting promotions sure to delight any racing fan.

Up until Aug. 31, 2014, fans can go to and click on the “How Does OSRAM SYLVANIA Light Up Your Life?” sweepstakes tab to enter and obtain complete rules and regulations.  The winner will be selected at random out of the submitted entries. 

“From energy-efficient light bulbs in your home and office to headlights in your vehicle and our support of racing, we are helping to brighten the world for NASCAR fans everywhere,” said Jim Sanford, vice president, Strategy, Communication & Government Affairs of OSRAM SYLVANIA.

The SYLVANIA 300 VIP Experience Giveaway Prize Package, being provided by NHMS, includes:

SYLVANIA 300 Champion Camper Contest

SYLVANIA 300 fans are passionate about NASCAR racing with many driving hundreds of miles to camp during race week and celebrate the sport.  SYLVANIA 300 fans that are camping in the RV area of NHMS during race week this year are invited to go to and click on the “SYLVANIA 300 Champion Camper” contest tab.  There they can enter for a chance to win a trip to the Bank of America 500 in Concord, North Carolina and obtain complete rules and regulations. 

“We are so appreciative of the NASCAR fan base and want to reward a die-hard supporter that eats, sleeps and breathes the SYLVANIA 300 during race week at New Hampshire Motor Speedway,” said Sanford.

Up until Aug. 31, 2014, fans can tell us how their SYLVANIA 300 camp area qualifies them as the SYLVANIA Champion Camper.  Five semi-finalists will then be chosen at random and sent SYLVANIA MOSAIC® Outdoor/Indoor LED Flexible Light Strips for decorating their camp area during the SYLVANIA 300 race week.  Semi-finalists and their guest will be VIPs at the SYLVANIA 300 Lobster Fest on Sept. 19.  After dinner, semi-finalists will bring a panel of judges to their campsites to have their sites evaluated for creativity and use of the MOSAIC strips.  The winner of the trip will be announced live on stage during the pre-race ceremonies just prior to the drop of the green flag for the SYLVANIA 300 on Sept. 21.
